So where does Princess Beatrice's daughter rank in royal baby weights from cuddly Louis to tiny Harry?

PRINCESS Beatrice welcomed her first baby with husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi on Saturday with the pair said to be “delighted” by the arrival.

The Princess of York welcomed a baby girl Chelsea and Westminster Hospital at 11:42pm, with their daughter weighing 6lb 2oz.

The average weight for a baby born in the UK is 7lb 8oz for boys and for girls 7lb 4oz, putting Bea’s baby on the lower end of the scale.

But how does she compare to her royal relatives? Here we reveal how much the royal babies weighed at birth…

August Philip Hawke Brooksbank

Beatrice’s sister Princess Eugenie and her husband Jack Brooksbank welcomed their son August on February 9 at 8:55am.

He weighed 8lbs 1oz at birth making him larger than the average UK baby boy.

August is also almost two whole pounds heavier than his new baby cousin.

Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s second child Lilibet  “Lili” Diana Mountbatten-Windsor, who shares Her Majesty’s family nickname, arrived at 11.40am June 4 in California.

A statement from the Duke and Duchess of Sussex confirmed that the baby girl weighed 7lbs 11oz putting her on the higher end of the UK average.

Interestingly the average weight of a baby girl in the USA where Lili was born is 7 lb 2 oz making the tot 9oz heavier than her national average.

Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor

Lili’s older brother, by comparison, was much smaller at birth.

Archie, who is now two-years-old, was born on May 6, 2019 at 5:26am weighing 7 lb 2 oz, a whole 9oz less than his little sister.

It also makes him 6oz smaller than the average UK baby boy.

Prince Louis

Born on April 23 at 11.01am, Prince Louis was the heaviest of the Cambridge children.

Kate Middleton and Prince William’s youngest child weighed 8lb, 7oz when he was born.

That made Louis almost a whole pound heavier than the average UK baby boy and was one pound off being referred to as macrosomia.

What is a normal weight for a newborn baby?

The average weight for a baby born in the UK is 7lb 8oz for boys and for girls 7lb 4oz.

Prince Louis weighed 8lb, 7oz when he was born – putting him on the upper end of the normal scale.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's baby Archie weighed 7lbs 3oz at birth.

A newborn who weighs more than 8.8lbs is considered larger than normal – and may be referred to as macrosomia.

These babies are often born to mums who developed gestational diabetes while pregnant.

You may also have a big baby if you:

  • Were a big baby yourself
  • Were overweight before becoming pregnant
  • Have gained a lot of weight during pregnancy
  • Give birth two or more weeks after your due date

Princess Charlotte

Though it seems that bigger babies run in the Cambridge family as Louis’ older sister Princess Charlotte weighed just 4lb less.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s only daughter was born on May 2 2015 at 8:34am and weight 8lb 3oz.

Again that made the adorable baby girl almost an entire pound heavier than the average baby girl.

Prince George

Kate and William’s first child Prince George was born 4:24pm on 22 July 2013.

While heavier than the average UK boy he weighed a pound less than his younger brother at  8lb 6oz.

Prince Harry

Until the birth of Beatrice's daughter Prince Harry was the lightest of the royal family.

When he was born on September 15 1984, he weighed just 6lbs 14oz.

Prince William

Born on June 21 1982, Prince William was just below the average baby weight.

He came in at 7lb 1.5oz.

Prince Charles

It seems that Prince Charles was the most perfectly average of the royal babies.

Born on November 14, 1948, he came in at 7lbs 6oz.

The Queen's granddaughter Beatrice gave birth at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, welcoming her baby girl just before midnight at 11.42pm.

Beatrice is already a stepmother to Edoardo's five-year-old son Christopher Woolf, known as Wolfie.

As she made the official announcement through Buckingham Palace, Beatrice made sure to make a sweet nod to her husband, multi-millionaire property developer Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi's son.

The Palace wrote: "Her Royal Highness and her child are both doing well, and the couple are looking forward to introducing their daughter to her big brother Christopher Woolf."

And Beatrice also made sure to thank the hospital staff after the exciting arrival, writing: "So delighted to share the news of the safe arrival of our daughter on Saturday 18th September 2021, at 23.42, at the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, London.

"Thank you to the Midwife team and everyone at the hospital for their wonderful care."
